Posey out, Pollard banged up

Marc Spears has an update on injuries to James Posey and Scot Pollard:

Rivers said forward James Posey will miss his second straight game tonight against the Raptors with a sprained index finger on his right hand. Posey sat out of practice yesterday and was on the sideline with ice bags on his right hand and his knees. "It's improving, but at the same time anything can probably reaggravate it," Posey said. "It's a matter of calming everything down so it's pain-free."

Center Scot Pollard has not played the last six games. He has been nursing a sore right ankle and had a slight limp while running up the court in practice yesterday. "I'm in uniform," Pollard said. "I wish it was feeling better."

As always, let's wish both Posey and Pollard a speedy recovery.  Posey is obviously the more consistent day-to-day performer, but Pollard has something to offer this team, as well.
